    Gandhi Jayanti A tribute to Father of the Nation

    Gandhi Jayanti or Mahatma Gandhi Jayanti is observed every year as a national holiday to commemorate the birth of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (October 2, 1869 January 30, 1948). His nonviolence or satyagraha continues to influence political leaders and movements till date. The celebration and essence of Gandhi Jayanti is not restricted within India and also observed by the United Nations as the International Day of nonviolence that aims to disseminate his philosophy, principle and believe in nonviolence through proper education and public awareness. Gandhi Jayanti is celebrated yearly on 2 October. It is one of the three official declared National Holidays of India, and is observed in all of its states and union territories. The other two are Independence Day (15 August) and Republic Day (26 January). Gandhi Jayanti is marked by prayer services and tributes all over India, especially at Raj Ghat, Gandhis memorial in New Delhi where he was cremated. Popular celebration includes prayer meetings, commemorative ceremonies in different cities by colleges, local government institutions and sociopolitical institutions. Painting and essay competitions are conducted and best awards are granted for projects in schools and the community on themes of glorifying peace, nonviolence and Gandhis effort in Indian Freedom Struggle. Gandhis favourite devotional song, Raghupathi Raghava Rajaram, is usually sung in memory of him.
